The management team of San Javier Airport has given one month´s notice to the owners of 17 vehicles that they are classing as “abandoned”, amongst which are a BMW, a Volvo, a Renault, a Toyota and several Ford cars, plus a Mercedes 190.
The vehicles are all parked at the airport, and have been for some time, and therefore the notice is given for the owners to collect and remove them, or they will take action to do so themselves.
The resolution states that after the one month period, if the vehicles are not removed, the airport authority will “inform the provincial traffic headquarters for processing by an authorized group as waste”.
So if you have parked at the airport for any length of time, or if you simply can´t remember where you parked, it might be worth checking out this collection, before they are taken away for good, and possibly given to a new, “worthy” home.

The weekly Craft Fair that has been held in the Old Town of La Nucía, every Sunday morning since the beginning of February, is coming to the end of its first season: only three more to go. Although they could have done with some more public, the reactions have been very positive and the participants are already planning to continue after the summer with new ideas and more stalls.
Every Sunday morning some ten or twelve stalls are set up in the lovely square in front of the church and the Town Hall, offering a wide choice of good quality hand made goods. And every week some new craftsman or artist joined the group that is taking turns so as to offer as much variety as possible. On the 9th of June there will even be three “new” stalls: one from the painter Antonio, another with jewelry and faces cut from the stones of avocado pears and one offering brooches and little boxes decorated with intricate quilling. Ricardo is coming back with his chess games made of leather (even the pieces!); there will be lamps and rag dolls, enamels and hand painted glass, soap, jewelry and crochet.
In the web page of Amata, the organizing craft association, you can see who is coming these last three weeks (the list is completed as the participants book their places); http://www.amata.es/LaNucPart.html is the direct link to this list and at http://www.amata.es/LaNucFoto.html you can see photographs of previous weeks.
